FAQS

DO YOU ALLOW PETS?

We are in a very rural location and are incredibly lucky to have an abundance of wildlife that share our woodland with us and call it their home too. Therefore, we regret that pets are not permitted to stay at A Little Bit of Rough.

The woodland is also surrounded by farmland with livestock adjoining our site, which sometimes like to come for a visit too!

We kindly ask guests with pets to make sure they have made suitable arrangements for their furry loved ones in advance of their stay

IS THERE ELECTRICITY?

In our canvas lodges we do not have any power outlets. There is a solar powered charger (weather permitting) for phones & tablets. We would advise that all phones & tablets are fully charged before you stay and if you have one bring a car phone charger or portable power pack.

The Rocket Lodge does have electricity / power outlets.

WHAT IS THE MAXIMUM OCCUPANCY OF EACH LODGE?

The maximum capacity of each lodge is up to 6 guests (maximum 4 x adults) plus 1 x baby in travel cot if required.

 

CAN FRIENDS AND FAMILY COME AND VISIT DURING OUR STAY?

Due to our location and in the interest of site security, we do not permit food deliveries to the woodland. There is a well stocked Co-op in Uppingham which is a 7 minute drive away or a Tesco Supermarket in Oakham which is a 15 minute drive away, both will cater for all your needs.

When the wood-burning stove is in operation in the canvas lodges, the temperature inside gets lovely and warm.

However, we do like to remind all guests, that you are staying in a tent, albeit a very posh one!
